So, you got a new dog in the home. Ready to start training? You need to start with the most important part of good training: Quality training treats that your dog will want more than anything else.
Stewart Pet sent me and Sebastian some of their Pro-Treat Freeze Dried Treats to review, and I must say, we’re both pretty happy with this.
Now, this is what I LOVE about these treats: There’s one ingredient. We got the Pork flavor. Here’s the entire list of ingredients:
THE END. Back when Sebastian’s wolf ancestors were scavenging the wild to feed themselves, do you think they were specifically seeking corn meal or meat by-products? No, they hunted down animals. So this is just as good as preparing a pork liver and chopping it up for Sebastian, only I don’t have to do all the work!
I decided to do a three-part Instagram tutorial on the characteristics of a quality dog treat. Let’s see how the Stewart Pet treats fare.
First, it needs to be stinky. This is paramount. If you want a dog to do something for you, he needs to know he is getting a major reward for it. And since dog noses are more keen than ours, and dogs LOVE pungent, stinky smells, this is paramount when you’re in the training stage.
Your training treat also needs to be small. Dogs do NOT care about getting giant rewards! Also, you don’t want your dog getting sick when rewarding him for doing things like sitting, leaving things alone or heeling when you walk him. And might I say, Sebastian has impeccable timing on this one.
A good #dogtraining treat is also small. #StewartPet treats are great little rewards. #Review A video posted by @bellesouthblogs on
And finally, is the treat going to be tasty? I mean, why would you use a bunch of training treats that your dog things are bland or gross? You want something your dog starts sniffing as soon as possible. You want to keep your dog close. You want your dog to be willing to do ANYTHING for that treat.
These liver treats come in seven different flavors, and Sebastian and I will be back soon to review more products from Stewart Pet and show you how to reward a good and happy pooch!
